Will Tom Hanks lead Frank Darabont's adaptation of the Bradbury classic Fahrenheit 451? So says an AICN tipster, who claims the actor will play the novel's fireman protagonist Guy Montag. If the rumor proves true, it will remain to be seen if Hanks can pull off playing a sort of "everyman" role. And if so, will the moviegoers be willing to look past his parts in Bosom Buddies and Bachelor Party to see him as a different character? God I hope so! I, for one, like this Tom Hanks fellow, and I think he should be getting more famous leading roles like this.
